Arsenal apparently made a mistake when they spent £72 million on Nicolas Pepe, and should have put that money towards tempting Harry Maguire from Leicester City. That is according to Charlton Athletic boss Lee Bowyer, who bases his stance on a rather obvious fact that the Gunners had no problems upfront in recent years, as opposed to what’s been going on in defence.
The rumblings surrounding different transfer possibilities continue to swirl around every single club in the Premier League, and Arsenal certainly aren’t immune to that. The Gunners are in need of some changes during the January transfer window and that make is painfully obvious, but the question remains as to what those changes will be.
One example of a potentially intriguing transfer is Harry Maguire heading to the Emirates. While it may not seem particularly likely it definitely feels like he’s going to make the jump to a bigger club at some point, with all due respect to Leicester City. The Foxes are good but Maguire, especially after his performances during the World Cup in the summer, deserves a more high profile move – in our opinion.
Over the course of the summer, and more specifically the 2018 FIFA World Cup, many heroes were born across all 32 countries that competed in the finals. One nation, in particular, who experienced something of a resurgence on the biggest stage was England as the Three Lions pushed themselves all the way to the semi-finals of the tournament in Russia. Some bitter fans will argue that they had an easy route to get there but either way, it’s hard not to be excited by the future of this team.
Best Odds: 4/9
Tunisia and England go head-to-head in Group G of the World Cup, as both teams look to get their campaign off to a winning start. However, this clash will be regarded as the classic World Cup David v Goliath encounter.
Tunisia are back at the World Cup after a 12-year absence. Russia 2018 will be their fifth World Cup appearance, but the North African side have yet to progress past the group stages of the competition.
